Q Are subsidized healthcare plans still available?
Yes, federal subsidies will still be available for the 2018 year. Subsidies help keep the cost of monthly premiums down to make plans more affordable for low-income families. It has been estimated that nine out of ten of the half a million N.C. residents under the ACA 2017 plans received financial assistance for their health insurance. The other 10 percent of North Carolinians had their insurance covered in full.
